I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about this, including you, and I just had to ask about it because I’m feeling a bit confused. Buddie has been very physically distance ever since eddie got shot, is this a positive thing or?
Well, first of all, "positive" is entirely subjective and up to you. Only you can decide if you like something or not.
Now, if by "positive," you mean indicative of Buck and Eddie's love story? My opinion is yes.
"5 feet apart so it's not gay" is a meme in the world for a reason. It's an old, homophobic, hack trope in film and tv to intentionally use homoerotic tension between two attractive men in the subtext. "Sexual" tension that they have zero intention of actually resolving romantically — everyone understands that it would be absurd, a joke even, to consider actually allowing a romantic connection between these hot guys.
Alongside the sly allusions and homoerotic tension, a requirement is physical distance. So everyone can be crystal clear this is NOT gay. The only time they are allowed physical proximity is if they are fighting — literally enacting violence against each other. There are too many examples of this in the media to even begin to name. It's everywhere.
With Buck and Eddie, 911 ignored this playbook from the beginning, which is delightful.
From Eddie's first episode — literally the very first one — Buck and Eddie established an instant physical connection that we have not seen either of them show with anyone else. The "Personal Space? I Don't Know Her" meme launched episode one. I mean, hello?!?
@milenadaniels catalogues the delightful absurdity of Buck and Eddie's first episode here.
But then, oh then, things got really interesting. Because Buck and Eddie's story became a love story. We as a fandom simply do not have a blueprint for this, and it can be really confusing!
So, the "5 feet apart because it's not gay" cynicism actually doesn't have a place with Buck and Eddie at all. In fact, it's entirely flipped on its head, where physical distance is intentionally used to frame their deepening emotional connection and the progress of their love story. Because even while they continue to casually ignore personal space on the job, Buck and Eddie's most emotionally charged scenes frame their bodies with a pointed physical space between them:
And their most sexually charged scene started at a distinct physical distance:
...a physical distance that Buck very pointedly, almost but not quite, took steps to close:
So, my take on all this is that the first few phases of their love story were about their deepening emotional connection and emotional intimacy, including the intimacy of their family unit with Christopher.
But the last, terrifying, life-altering horizon is their physical connection and sexual intimacy. So their notable physical distance during emotionally charged scenes — which really ramped up in S4 and continues into S5 — is an indicator of their struggle with this last horizon: their romantic connection. Maybe ironically, the witholding of physical intimacy just further emphasizes the love story.
It's not lost on me that these two men who have not hesitated to be quite tactile with each other since they met — who are each other's person, who provide comfort to each other again and again — have not hugged on screen in almost two years. Because when they hug next? The sheer intimacy, the intensity of the romantic charge will be unmistakable. They are ratcheting up the tension, building towards something. And for what it's worth, I'm convinced it's coming soon.

you can't tell me buck and eddie don't have a special bond. no, but really the level of physical intimacy eddie and buck have is just unbelievable, insane. and it's so obvious, the show makes it a point to show us how much trust these two have. just- from the way they walk so close their shoulders touch with every step to the way they sit unnecessarily close to each other until their thighs are touching to the way they squeeze each other’s shoulders during calls in a comforting touch that conveys more than words can say. the way they turn to each other or seek each other out or the way they smile at each other, how they know when the other is going through something without even having to ask. it’s intimate and beautiful and they’re so comfortable being in each other’s personal space. they're so in love it's not even funny anymore.
seriously, these two idiots don't know the concept of personal space. they're practically glued together ninety percent of the time.

I hunt for you with bloodied feet (across the hallowed ground) by @spidermaneddie
“I’m fully capable of controlling myself, Maddie,” Buck says, “your lack of faith is astounding.”
“Listen, any other time, you would have my complete faith,” she tells him seriously, “but this thing with Eddie is different, you’ve never had someone like that around during your ruts before.”
Buck gives her a flat look. “He won’t be there for my rut.”
She rolls her eyes. “You know what I mean. Your instincts are all crazy right now and your control is tenuous at best so just...”
“Just what, Maddie?” Buck passes a tired hand over his face again.
“Just be careful, that’s all I’m saying,” she sighs.

i should be dancing with you by prettyboybuckley
3.1k | Explicit | No Archive Warnings Apply | Evan "Buck" Buckley/Eddie Diaz
Hen has been talking about this new gay bar that a friend of hers recommended and that she and Karen want to check out, extending the invitation to all of them.
Now, Buck has been to plenty of gay bars in his life, has known he's bisexual since seventh grade when he got his first kiss from Andy Miller. So he didn't have to think long before saying yes.
Eddie, however, Eddie was hesitant. Which Buck gets, because the man is straighter than straight, raised in a conservative family. Going to a gay bar is probably a big step for someone like Eddie.
OR: when dancing leads to more

“No, Eddie, I’m not—I’m not in pain.” Buck stares down into his beer bottle and ignores the way that if he grinds his hips back just right, the plug pushes against his prostate. “Everything is fine.”
“See, I don’t believe you.” Eddie puts his bottle down on the coffee table and shifts closer into Buck’s space, which is saying something because they already sit so close, and Eddie puts his hand on Buck’s shoulder, caging him in against the couch. “Buck. Whatever is happening, you can tell me.”
“No, I really can’t.”
